I love navy and black. Especially together.
This is my favourite outfit of the moment!
...and it starts with these. HELLO BABIES.
Agessss ago I won a competition with Upper Street Shoes to design my own pair of shoes - and here they are! I went for navy snakeskin and suede with studs in a classic court shape. This is a shape I'm really loving at the moment and I always love navy blue. I'm thinking I'll get a lot of wear outta these! I lovelovelove them and the whole experience of designed with Upper Street was incredible. I would highly recommend them if you can't find the shoes you dream of!

This vintage silk shirt from my favourite shop in Camden is getitng a lot of wear at the moment, as is the Timex watch that was given to me after my shoot with Jackie Dixon (which you can see here!) And I really think that these Marks & Spencer black ankle lengths are the perfect modern version of the classic black trouser.
And the finishing piece: the Marni for H&M jacket that I am besotted with. It was the only piece that I reeeeeally wanted from the whole collection and I managed to find it in the sale - the only one! - at Westfield while shopping with my girl Jet. (Sorry I grabbed it first, J!)
It was FIFTEEN POUNDS. It was FASHION FATE.
Seriously: I had to Instagram (amywolfwhistle!) the tag in sheer disbelief. IT WAS 90% OFF.
And, if I've put you in the mood for some navy and black - and maybe a bargain or two of your own! - here are my six sales picks...
Neoprene skirt // H&M £15
Court shoes with metal heels // New Look £20
Navy blue ankle length trousers // H&M £6.49 (!)
Black drape front mac // Topshop £40

Drop waist neoprene dress (I like neoprene!) // Dorothy Perkins £17
Think I look like the world's cheesiest catalogue model in that first photo? (I do.)
Think black and navy are the most boring colours ever? (My mum does.)
